If it goes live (and I'm thinking it might any minute now), we'll update this post.
After that QR Code has been scanned, you will see a unique code that then pairs your smartphone with the web client. You'll need an Android phone.
Google launched the web-based version of Allo. You can add emojis just by using the smiley button and also you can search for the various sticker packs on the right side. Its lack of features and poor transition experience from older Google messaging apps has led to a sluggish adoption rate.
Not just conversations, you also have access to Google Assistant. Google Allo already had 10 million installations on Google Play past year, with the other popular program Duo getting over 100 million installations. Apart from cases of security concerns or deleted browser cookies, you won't be required to sign into the same computer again after you initially set it up. But there's a caveat. To keep your Allo for web connected, your mobile phone must be connected to the Internet. Scan the QR code you see appear on the website and you'll gain entry to the Allo web app. It only works through the Chrome browser.

Google Allo is now available on the web, but if you would like to use this new chat application you need to have an Android device. There is no word on when the iOS version will be getting this functionality.
Web support for Allo was teased months ago, and now Google has made good on its promise, though there are a few important caveats. Sadly, Google didn't emulate Facebook's other chat service, Messenger - in that case there's no pairing required, the web version acts like a standalone client. Now all Google needs to do is remove some of these restrictions and we can really get rolling with the Allo web app.
Not so long ago, Google Duo, another app that was launched alongside Allo and specifically handles voice and video calls, clocked the 100 million mark in terms of Play Store downloads. Allo for web is here!
